Don't be put off by the long lines! They move quickly, as the staff is fast and able to turn out great ice cream and soft serve efficiently. The place to go after the beach, any afternoon or evening until 10 in the summer. Nothing like the flavor of the soft serve anywhere else! A great summer treat for everyone!

I love Frosty Freez ice cream and with the line of people waiting, I'm not alone. We have been coming here every time we are in town. They also serve frozen yogurt. My mom says that Only8 is outstanding! They also have doggy dish for your furry friend!

We have been patronizing this ice cream shop for years due to ease of access after eating at Anthony's Seafood. We hopes one day they will offer a sugar cone option! We also recommend Giffords brand of icecream! The selection is broad, pleasing even the most picky in our party. Thanks for being a consistent fixture in the area!

If there is such a thing as an ice cream joint, this is it. I've been coming here since I was a kid and every time I come home to visit(I am now in my 40's with kids of my own) we come here. It's a special place, you can feel that when you pull up even though it's not... More

Can't wait to get back to Newport every summer for this soft ice cream. Have not found any place that compares. Love the old-timey atmosphere. Staff super friendly. Can't comment on any of the other options - I've only had the soft ice cream!

A must go to place for ice cream. Only open from Spring to Fall but locals mob the place especially on weekends. Great ice cream, very reasonable prices, and good service once you get to the counter.

If you want a real treat then go to Frosty Freez. The ice cream is always great, and if you see a long line thats OK because the line moves quickly, a visit to the island means you have to go here!

Description
Frosty Freez serves only the BEST soft-serve real ice cream from Garelick Farms, and we offer 18 flavors of awesome hard ice cream from different vendors (Hershey's, Gifford's and Bliss Dairy, we picked our favorites!) We serve Only8 Frozen Yogurt, which is a non-fat, low-sugar treat that is safe for most diabetics and people with lactose intolerance, and we also carry sugar-free and dairy-free options. We're known for our fast, friendly service and reasonable prices, we keep the place clean as a whistle, and we care about our community. We work hard to make our shop a great place to take the whole family, or a date, or your friends, or just treat yourself!
